Inspirational Signs from the Women's March

Signs that motivated a nation to fight

Inspirational Signs from the Women's March
J. Conrad Williams Jr.

January 20th was a day of transitions for the United States. It received the attention of people across the world. January 21st was a day of perseverance for the nation. It too received the attention of people across the world. On January 20th, fewer people attended than what was expected. On January 21st, many more attended than what was expected. January 20th was the presidential inauguration. January 21st was the Women's March. The day after Donald Trump became President of the United States, millions of people took to the streets in support of women's rights, racial justice, LGBTQ rights, and a multitude of other causes. People marched in Chicago, in Cape Town, in Los Angeles, in London, in Arizona and Antarctica. They marched for themselves, for their friends, for their family, for their neighbors, for their peers. And with them, they carried signs. These signs represented their frustration, their hope for the future, and their freedom of speech. Here are some, of millions, that truly stood out.

1. "My neck, my back, my pussy will grab back"

A clever twist on Khia's famous song

2. "Love not hate makes America great"

The true way that slogan should go

3. "Grow a pair" *written over an image of a uterus

A classic saying, but instead, focusing on the power of women

4. "Ninety, Nasty, and Not giving up"

Fighting for all generations

5. "Super callous, fascist, racist, extra braggadocios"

"Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!" - Marry Poppins

6. "I do not like you down my shirt. I do not like you up my skirt. I do not like you near my rump. I do not like you Mr. Trump"

The grown-up version of Dr. Seuss

7. " Think before you tweet"

A simple, but important lesson

8. "Hate cannot drive out hate, only love can..."

A reminder to not "fight fire with fire"

9. "Here's to strong women. May we know them, may we be them, may we raise them. Today we march in solidarity"

The reason we march

10. "Alone we are invisible, together we are invincible"

The power of words, no matter the language

11. "So my daughter can...

Marching for the next generation

12. "Stronger together"

A true representation of America

13. "Marched 40 years ago for: women's equality and reproductive rights. Still here!"

Never stop marching for what is right

14. "I'm with them"

A united front

15. "You are not powerless"

A reminder to us all

So keep on marching, keep on sharing powerful signs, and keep on fighting for what you believe in.

And if you're looking for more, watch this group of women inspire us all.

Michigan Rain Vs. California Rain

SO, I've just recently had the fortunate experience to be reminded just how Michigan rains. Now, before you roll your eyes at me, I HAVE EXPERIENCED RAIN (in regards of the the popular joke that Californians haven't). However, I have to agree; after experiencing one of Michigan's thunderstorms (with my college's sirens blaring in the background), it comes to mind just how different "rain" is between the two states:

For those of you that don't know, I am a radio DJ at IUP, and I DJ for a show called BPM (Beats Per Minute). It is an EDM, or electronic dance music, based show and I absolutely love it.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

Kinder Self - Eyes

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"
